Florida Standards

On Feb. 18, 2014, the State Board of Education for Florida adopted new student performance standards in English/Language Arts and Mathematics.

The new name of the standards – Florida Standards – recognizes the state has academic benchmarks in all subjects including science and social studies.

Ebenezer International Christian Academy meets Florida Standards and will continue to develop its curriculum to align with state and national standards, as well as parents’ and students’ needs.
